My carpenter brother gave me some scrap wood and the thought came to me to make a mini golf course. I cut 4x8 sheets of plywood in half length wise. I nailed 2x2's on the under side and 1x2's on the top. I cut 4" pvc pipe for the cups. I cut and added outdoor green carpet with the 1x2's on top of the carpet. The tiny green circles and cut from felt and tell where to start each course. I am thrilled with how this turned out.

To make a Mandrake start with a terra cotta pot, $1 store dolls, artificial plant, fabric strips, floral block, and moss if desired.
Remove the dolls clothes and hair
Prepare the pot with the floral block while the glue gun heats up.
I start gluing a fabric strip to the top of the dolls head and wrap it around the head continually adding glue.
I then move to the body and arms. There is no need to go past the waist. The legs will be stuck into the floral foam. Paint the fabric on the doll a brown color.
Stick the doll into the floral foam and glue your artificial plant leaves on top of the head. Add moss as desired.
